Background


Access For Success is a Big Lottery Funded Project run throughout the Western Trust Area (Omagh, Fermanagh & Derry/L'derry). The project is delivered by Leonard Cheshire Disability and aims to support individuals and groups with a range of disabilities aged 18-25 along with their parent/carer. Support from the Project Officers can be given to each individual over a 2 year period through; group workshops, 1 to 1 advice, accessing the community, volunteering and setting up lobbying groups.

The project will focus on softer outcomes such as improving confidence, encouraging positive coping techniques, engaging in the local community and instilling independence to help build resilience. By developing these skills, young people will have a platform to make positive changes whilst improving their health and well being. The project is co-designed and co-produced by the young people who are part of our Advisory Board.
